May i make an alternative-tech suggestion? First, blood will not mix
with oil ("pretty smelling" or otherwise") but it dilutes quite nicely
in distilled water. 

I suggest that instead of hunting up some possibly medically-restricted
anti-coagulant, you try thinning the blood a bit with distilled water
and then FREEZING the diluted blood until it is needed for use. I have
never tried this, but i have seen enough of the blood that thaws out of
packages of defrosting meats to get the notion that it just might work
for you.
